There is a fantastic opportunity for Gaelic artists, across various art forms and disciplines, to create new text based work.

The National Theatre of Scotland, in conjunction with Pròiseact nan Ealan, is running a week long residency at Highland writing centre ‘Moniack Mhor’ from Monday, February 3rd to 7th.

The aim is to nurture and support emerging Gaelic theatre-makers and to engage an audience excited by the possibilities of Gaelic drama.

The programme will connect with 12 Gaelic artists and will be open to both existing theatre artists and those who do not currently work in traditional theatre roles.

You may be a writer or an actor, a story-teller or a musician. You should have been working professionally in your field for a minimum of three years.

Through workshops, and group and individual sessions with the tutors, the course will explore methods for developing a theatrical piece, no matter what your background.

To apply for the residency email Anna Hodgart at: anna.hodgart@nationaltheatrescotland.com.

Include a 150 word statement of why you would like to take part with a copy of your CV outlining your experience in the arts. a short statement (max 150 words) outlining your passion for and commitment to theatre (as a maker or audience member etc) and a short (max 100 words) paragraph about a theatrical idea you would like to explore during the residency.

The deadline for applications is Monday, 16th December.
